BURLESQUE IN HARLEM (1954) is a full-length motion picture candidly capturing an evening of Harlem burlesque in 1954, complete with singers, baggy-pants comics and "exotic" dancers. Features such greats as George Wilshire, Dick Barrow, JoJo Adams, Tarza Young, Princess D'Orsay and many others. Bawdy blues singers, slick tap dancers, exotic showgirls in minimal attire… they are all here. Wait till you see the legendary comic Pigmeat Markham making an appearance in a clever, fast-talking sketch about a sex clinic. Also included as a bonus is a 1955 ALL-STAR SHOW from television with an all-black cast including Nat King Cole and Mantan Moreland.
